European DataWarehouse GmbH (EDW) is a securitisation repository for the EU and the UK authorised by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). It was established in 2012 as the first securitisation repository in Europe to facilitate the collection, validation and download of standardised loan-level data for asset-backed securities and private loan portfolios. EDW has collected detailed information on more than 100 million loans since its inception. Operating as a market infrastructure, EDW aims to increase transparency and restore confidence in the securitisation market. Across Europe, more than 500 issuers, investors, regulators, central banks and professional users place their trust in EDW.
European DataWarehouse GmbH was founded in 2012 as part of the implementation of the European Central Bank's ABS Loan Level Initiative, making it the first and only designated securitisation data repository of the Eurosystem. In 2021, it was granted recognition as an EU securitisation repository by ESMA. European DataWarehouse Limited was founded already in 2018, operating as a wholly owned subsidiary of European DataWarehouse GmbH in the United Kingdom, where it was recognised as a securitisation repository in 2022.
EDW was funded and is owned by 16 market participants, including European banks, rating agencies, associations and service providers to the securitisation industry. True Sale International GmbH is a shareholder of European DataWarehouse and has played an important role in the foundation and development of the platform. As a shareholder of EDW, we contribute our knowledge and expertise to the platform, supporting the goal of strengthening the European securitisation market.
